Sounds like he didn't know what he was doing :) I'm only planning on
running a small amount, say 40-50 horse worth. I'm sure the stock rods
will take it...after all, RPM is the biggest stress on them - not
compression or combustion pressure, and I only plan on 6200 max (not like
the mini-modders around here who turn 7000+ on their stock rod motors). 

I'm more worried about detonation and having the motor puke up a chunk of 
ring land :) Bye bye turbo.
